Preppy Text V5
For this tutorial you will need...
• Any pattern or you can use this one
• Your desired pattern defined.
• A pre-done gradient or a desired colour scheme for the gradient.
First type out your text.
Double click the layer to bring up the 'blending options' box, then go to 'stroke'. Using the colour #4a4a4a, match your setting's to mine but don't press OK.
Now go to 'gradient overlay' and using your desired gradient, match your setting's to mine and press OK.
Create 4 blank layers above the text layer, then drag the text layer above all the layers so it sits above them. Then merge the text layer down.
Double click the text layer and go to stroke. Using the same gradient from step 3, match your settings to mine and go to Pattern Overlay when you're done.
Using the provided pattern, match your setting's to mine then go to bevel and emboss.
Match your bevel and emboss setting's to mine and press OK.
Now go to Filter > Artistic > Plastic Wrap
Match your setting's to mine and press OK when you're done.
Lastly, go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen
to make the text stand out.
